August 5 for new turf. How does that play with Preseason ready to kick off and the Regular season only a month away??

That's gotta be a typo . . . You'd think they'd want it in this spring to get the roots nice and strong by September

thats wrong, its april not august
Barrows has fixed it now - well done Webzone. April makes me feel a lot better. We would lead the league in knee and ankle injuries otherwise.

The NFL has a requirement for number of weeks a new field must be installed before a game can be played on it. Levis is right up against that requirement.

I guess that rule doesn't apply to the raiders and their infield replacement and the resodding of fields in between the hashes. Usually stadiums will do those in just 2 weeks with a bye or away game.

Yeah, when I read that I thought it was definetly a typo. No way their laying the field in August.

That was just a bad typo because there's a SJ 'Quakes game in Levi's like August 4th (maybe 2nd?). Whatever the case, field will be getting installed in about a week.

Glad it's in April and not in August. It's been a long enough wait already. Can't wait to see the grass layed down.

Definitely an exception due to the multi-sport venue aspect (which used to apply to many more teams/stadiums)
Remember back in the day when we lost to Dallas in the NFCCG it rained like hell all week and they slapped some new sod down that week.
I want some gold grass.

At least in the endzones.
I hope the tradition of red endzones for the playoffs continues at Levi's
